Reviews

'Energetic research applied to an unusually wide range of questions about the making of an institution; scrupulous and imaginative scholarship; due respect and exemplary candour. This book has the pleasures of both familiarity and unfamiliarity. Visually, too, it's a treat with rich and well captioned illustrations woven into the eloquent text. An admirable achievement.' Ken Inglis, Australian National University and author of Sacred Places: War Memorials in the Australian Landscape
